Benelli 500 Leoncino Sport 2018

That’s crazy ! When it comes to style, these Italians are strong. And we like it. Because the Leoncino takes advantage of it. Barely out in the street, the young wild beast concocts a café-racer version with the most beautiful effect. The fashion trend dictated the exercise, of course; like so many others.

But there is something to appreciate the operation. No stopwatch, no pressure, just tension, and a dose of gym-tonic for the 500 Leoncino Sport.

Benelli thus decided to continue the trend by "coursing" his little roadster. With a certain panache that cannot be overlooked. And the Leoncino Sport cannot be overlooked. He adopts all the appropriate paraphernalia. The added fork crown takes care of the look with minimal protection. Behind her, good care is taken for the pilot to smash his arms as he should on a pair of handlebars-bracelets. When some competitors ignore it, Pesaro’s motorcycle respects the tradition of offering spoke rims. Then, a series of fireworks will tip the temptation: seat cowl, radiator protection overflowing with scoops, split sports exhaust, saddle with specific patterns and coating, black exhaust line, wriggling colors, and the little touch that kills: a mini rigid bag on the right side simulating a number plate. Barely room to fit a wallet.

Under the trim, no technical changes for this Leoncino Sport. With its big sporty front end, the threat begins with a 50mm inverted fork, 320mm rotors and radial 4-piston calipers. The engine bite will be much more moderate. The 500 cc twin produces around fifty horsepower (47.6) and torque at 4.6 mkg. Too fair for a racer, enough for a long coffee on the country terrace. The little lion adorning the front mudguard will produce its little effect in front of every curious person.

We are entitled to wonder about the motivations of the Sino-Italian brand. As much as Benelli is able to get us dubious copies (Imperiale, 402S, 752S, TRK), the stroke of the pencil can be very attractive. The Leoncino benefits from this good grace. With this Sport face, everyone will really want to crack the mini-specials between the districts. It will be all the more regrettable to have a frankly modest dose of watts given its provocation.
